Club icon Barry Ferguson believes Rangers should make an audacious bid to bring Adam Lallana to the club on loan this January, as reported by The Scottish Sun.
Rangers were reported earlier this week to be favourites to sign the England international this month, probably due to our recent high profile move for Jermain Defoe and because of Steven Gerrard’s links with Liverpool.
Ferguson reckons that the move for Defoe and Steven Davis means the possibility of moving for the player shouldn’t be dismissed as nonsense.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun, Ferguson said:
See if this was six, eight weeks ago? I know Defoe was mentioned and obviously Davis, these two signings have happened, and now I’m beginning to believe Adam Lallana.
I think he’s a top, top player. If Rangers get him, they’ve got an even better chance to snatch the title away from Celtic.
The guy is genuine quality. I’ve watched him long enough in a Liverpool jersey. The guy’s got fantastic ability, can score a goal and is an England international.
Obviously the chances of signing Lallana this month are slim.
He earns £65,000-a-week according to Sportrac and while he is on the fringes of the first-team squad, he remains a viable option for Jurgen Klopp as they look to win the English Premier League title.
That makes any Rangers move for the player exceptionally difficult, even if we did pull off the coup of bringing Defoe to Scotland.
